The world of Aer is vast and filled with wonders.

General Edition

The General Edition will include all the content from the Hero Edition plus the next two future expansions: Onslaught and Empire Aflame!

This edition is the go-to choice in case you want absolutely everything and you also would like to save on future content, working essentially like a season pass.

We have plans to keep expanding and improving the game after its release, so we consider September 5th to be just the beginning of a long voyage. We will reveal more about our plans for Onslaught and Empire Aflame in the months to come.

Both the Hero Edition and the General Edition will be available on September 5th on all stores – Steam, Slitherine, GoG and other digital distributors across the world.

A physical version of the Hero Edition will be available on Slitherine, containing a printed hard-cover version of the amazing artbook. Truly a collector’s item!

You can wishlist Fantasy General II on Steam!

Not so much into fantasy myself, but the screens look great :)

Wondering if they'll also (re)do Star General?

Which is not to say that from a marketing stand point that makes any sense whatsoever.

Thanks for the welcome, as for being that way since day one, I believe Emerson had something amusing to say about that:

"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds"

Now that we’re getting near release date, Do you know whether saves from the beta will be compatible with the release version?

Since the information in GoG and Steam do not coincide, therefore, I ask whether Russian localization will be in the game?

developers have confirmed,

Yes, we are just waiting for the final files, so expect it a little after release. However we will update the game to the Russian version, so you can already buy it from the start
